This is a painting by the artist Magritte which I was first introduced to by Stuart Murray Williams and which I now steal regularly! It is a picture that all leaders would find worth pondering. Here are some questions to help you reflect on your own role as a prophetic, entrepreneurial or creative leader:
- What is the artist doing?
- What does the egg represent for you – a person, a community, an initiative, a congregation, a vision, a network or something else?
- What is your role as the artist?
- What if you are the egg? Who is the artist – a parent, a mentor, a friend, someone who believes in you… God?
- Who has seen and drawn out your potential?
- Is there more to be realised?
